Leica’s successful Reporter design series, which includes an M10-P and Q2 and Q2 Monochrom, is now extended to the SL range. Leica says the new camera represents photo and video journalism without limits.
The new SL2-S Reporter features an all-metal body and special armouring made from an Aramid fibre which offers excellent grip because of its rhombuses texture. It is dust and water-resistant, as is the standard SL2-S.
The body omits the Leica logo, and the camera is finished in a matte green which Leica says is very scratch and fingerprint resistant.
In all other respects, the Reporter is identical to the Leica SL2-S with its 24MB sensor and access to a wide range of L-mount lenses.
Initial production is limited to 1,000 units, and the SL2-S Reporter will sell for a recommended £4,700 in the UK (including taxes).
